Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0994106408, Paperback)

In Our Stories, author and journalist Ian Wishart brings out the most fascinating forgotten tales of our past, told through the eyes of the people who were there. Read about the tsunamis that washed away the homes and lives of our early European immigrants, or the earthquakes that toppled Christchurch buildings more than a century ago and lifted Wellington out of the sea. Read the real story about the search for gold, or the visiting circuses whose lions and leopards escaped, or the dinosaur found on a Taranaki riverbank (it's still there because it was too big to move!) Discover the heroes and villains of our past through long forgotten news stories from New Zealand, the USA, UK and Australia, and find out how life really was in pioneer days. These, and many more, are our stories...
